he's done letterman, leno, sat down with "people" magazine, and mitt romney has done plenty of these things too. this is not a barack obama or mitt romney thing. >> i'm just asking about the timing. >> what they're trying do is reach independent voters who haven't made their mind up yet and they think they may get them and female voters, get them through "the view." the timing makes it look more like he is focused on campaigning first and foremost than being president first and foremost and has opened him up to considerable criticism from republicans about, you know, how do you have it time on your schedule to do a midday talk show and to not sit down with some of these people. i just return to jeff's point, it's because he understands that any meetings here are fraught with the fact that we are exactly six weeks away from a very contentious election and he doesn't want to go down that road. you can debate whether that's the right or wrong thing for the president to do but it is the political thing that is being done currently. >> quickly, we want to talk about ohio, because "the was

elections. a poll among lely voters tha has mitt romney down eig poin. trinlin t state, all the polls, obama is way, internal polling has obama ahead in the mid to high single digits. today ohio does not look the same as florida, for example. florida looks like a true toss up. colodoksik as. nevada. ohio, by the numbers does not and i would say and we've talked about this, without ohio there are scenarios mitt romney can be elect elected president in terms of winning 0 electoral votes. needshi o n td a way in some combination of wisconsin, iowa, michigan or pennsylvania. >> before i let you go, jeff, jump in here a well. paul ryan s spoken out on that incredible missed call at the end of the ckers/seawks . nfs sgytand by the call, at least roger goodell is under a lot of pressure. this is paul ryan in cincinnati. >> going to start off on something that was really troubling that occurred last night. did you guys wch tt packer game lasni i mean, give me a break. it is time to get the real refs -- >> he went on to make a point, critical of president obama. but let's stick to footba

, you put out data this morning, close in several states but still in ohio, mitt romney down by 8 points among likely voters. i think that's very problematic for him. if he loses ohio getting to 270 electoral votes becomes not impossible but much more difficult. >> at the same time in the national poll, right track up to 40%, still not great, but it's the highest number we've seen in a number of years. this is better for the president. the enthusiasm gap still favors the president. >> yeah. the right track number i think is fascinating, andrea, because there's no obvious reason in the country in terms of economic indicators or anything else that people should be all of a sudden getting more optimistic about the direction of the country after they spent several years in the 30s in terms of people saying right direction but you're right, any kind of boost of optimism, and you've actually seen president obama moving in coordination with this, the question of is president obama handling the economy still not great but better. anything like that, helps the incumbent. remember, president obama

he got clobbered by him, that mitt romney, when he had to down in florida, literally turned things around, everybody saw that and knows that. mitt romney debated -- tim pawlenty said he's as good as a debater as there is, i'm telling you that because i debated him all the time. these are guys that ran against him. the fact is that mitt romney is very good debater. he's done a very good job. he's practiced and practiced and practiced and he's been flying around with, you know, the person playing obama on his airplane every minute. he's gone away and done five debates in 48 hours up in new hampshire or vermont or somewhere. this is the biggest deal in the world to him. he's been really getting ready for it and as we know from my experience with president bush, that debate can mean a lot. i went up eight to ten points after that debate, so mitt romney has a lot more going for him here. the president on the other hand, has to be president every day. just gave two speeches i thought terrific speeches in new york. he has been at the white house in dealing with a whole series of issues, m

economic plans, whether it's from the middle out by the president or from the top down by mitt romney. >> now, one of the things about barack obama that you know from having worked so closely with him is that sometimes he can be a little professorial, not to put down professors, but in a debate you have to think about the clock and think about the punchy line. is it a challenge for his current team to get him to speak in sound bites? >> well look, i used to joke with him it takes him 30 seconds to clear his throat sometimes. and look, i think -- look there's no doubt that, you know, you've got a very small window of time and brevity is certainly important and as i said earlier, andrea, the president hasn't done these formats in four years. mitt romney has done these pretty recently as part of 20 republican debates, but look, i have no doubt that the president will be well prepared and look, i don't actually think this debate is going to be decided by some snappy zinger or snappy sound bite. i think the american people, particularly the undecided voters that you, chris and mark were ta

couple mistakes and we're down a little bit. i don't think we're down by quite as much as the polls you cited show. let's not quibble about that. the romney campaign understands where they stand. they've got to refocus and drive home the basic questions that should drive this campaign. the president has some advantages in the polls today. he has one disadvantage going forward which i would simply call reality. we got the august family income report out the other day shows that family income declined again. chairman bernanke and the fed told us last week absent action we're headed toward another recession. that reality that we have to drive home to convince people that they, indeed, do need to make a change in course. >> housing starts up and stock market up, so there's a well effect that people seem to be feeling and people in the polls feeling better about the economy for one reason or another. >> consumer confidence up as well as the two things you cited, andrea. the problem is, you've been focusing mostly on ohio. what i think is the most devastating in "the new york times" poll,
